 Not long after New Scotch, LLC filed trademark applications for some of its whiskeys, the New Scotland company drew unwanted attention from the Scotch Whisky industry’s powerful and litigious trade organization. 

On May 11, the evening of a recent village of Voorheesville trustee workshop, starting at about 7:25 p.m., at the Main Street crossing, an Enterprise reporter waited for 18.5 minutes as a CSX train traveling at about 5 miles per hour pulled somewhere in the vicinity of between 140 and 160 railcars through the village.

NEW SCOTLAND — An 11-year Voorheesville Middle School student has been charged with a felony for threatening to kill a classmate last Wednesday. 

The incident occured on May 25, a day after the school massacre in Texas.

Carman Road between Wayto Road, home to Dunkin’ Donuts, and Marra Lane, the location of a number of apartment complexes, will be closed from Friday, June 3, at 8 p.m., until Monday, June 6, at 6 a.m., as will the access road leading to the I-890/I-90 interchange, according to a release from the state’s transportation department. 

At the May 17 town board meeting, Guilderland Supervisor Peter Barber told board members that he hopes to present them with a request for proposals in June for a contractor to run the comprehensive plan process for the town. 

In May 2021, the New Scotland Town Board voted to increase the price customers in the Font Grove and Clarksville districts paid for water. On May 11, those customers along with ones from the Northeast Water District received what appears to be some short-term relief as board members declined to increase their rates. 

Federal funds from the American Rescue Plan Act, of which the town received approximately $602,000, may be able to be used for the town’s 10-percent share of paying for the generators. 

Store signs became a bone of contention between Jonathan Phillips of Phillips Hardware and the Guilderland Coalition for Responsible Growth.

Of the 1,101 ballots cast on Tuesday, 893 were in favor of the $28.1 million budget for the 2022-23 school year and 208 were against it.

“We’re really excited about having it,” said Wendall Thayer, post commander of the Voorheesville American Legion Post 1493, of holding this year’s  Voorheesville Memorial Day Parade.
